Que sera sera

18 Feb

I blogged a week or so ago about the pain of uncertainty. It was crippling, consuming and I was suffocated by the anxiety of it all. I was doing (mostly) the right things, but it still hurt.
I got lots of amazing advice from followers of this blog and yet none of it changed how I felt. My head subscribed to the ideas I was being gifted, but my HEART didn’t feel it. 
And then something changed. The penny dropped. I heard an Eckhart Tolle line that made the messy jigsaw puzzle of life I was stressing and weeping over click into place. 
Tolle says: “if you embrace uncertainty, infinite possibilities open up in your life.” As simple as that. And it’s changed everything.
I’m praying to The Universe, meditating, doing yoga when I can and its helping soothe me. I’m feeling spiritually connected again to something bigger than me and once again I have the comfort that It Will All Be Ok. I feel it in my heart.
Que sera sera…
Edit: I wrote this post 5 days ago, and came back to it to publish, feeling anxious and stressed again. It reminded me of how our feelings are constantly shifting sands and how no emotion, good or bad, lasts forever. Reading it back reminded me to take time to be still, set stress aside and listen to the vibrations of the universe… May tranquility come once again
